Data Visualisation

Primarily for teaching purposes, I have become interested in different ways of visualising data pertaining to Chinese history. Here I list some of the visualisations of data I have done using Tableau and Flourish. I have included both a video/picture version and a direct link to the visualisation on Tableau or Flourish.
